Last night, the City Council unanimously approved Councilmember Barbara Delgleize's appointment as Mayor Pro Tem, a role that was vacated by Mr. Tito Ortiz on June 1. Councilmember Erik Peterson nominated Delgleize, citing her years of experience serving on the City Council. She was first elected to the Council in 2014 and served as Mayor from 2016-2017. She also serves in various leadership roles, including the Board of Directors for the Orange County Transit Authority and the Association of California Cities – Orange County. Mayor Pro Tem Delgleize will serve in her new role until December 2021.
Furthermore, we wish to thank Mr. Tito Ortiz for serving on the City Council this year and sharing his insights and recommendations for programs and policies that shape our community. We wish him very well in his future endeavors.
(Over the next few weeks, City Council will begin discussions about filling Mr. Ortiz’s vacated seat. As more details become available, we will be sure to share them with you.)
